What If You Could See Mental Illness?

Yes yes, what if we could see mental illness, sometimes, like now, I wish people could, just to stop the judgemental attitudes…

Fighting for a Future


“It’s my experience that people are a lot more sympathetic if they can see you hurting, and for the millionth time in my life I wish for measles or smallpox or some other easily understood disease just to make it easier on me and also on them.”
― Jennifer NivenAll the Bright Places

      1. Good for you. One thing that weirdly helped me was doing it to my heavy leather coat instead. I would wear the coat and do whatever to the arms of it. It got the feelings out but didn’t harm the body. Donnalee


      2. Yeah, I’m sorry. Sometimes it was just the thing to do, but I am not insane fulltime, so I can figure out what the heck is wise and yet gets out the feelings and even shows ‘proof’ that things sucked. The coat worked for me, especially since it has marks on it from animals etc. that mean a lot to me.


      3. Thanks. Being completely dissociated works too sometimes, just staying dead so that it gives me a break from having to be alive. It’s like I stayed dead from having been dead, so then it’s like an in-between realm and then I’ll get back to being alive when I get around to it or feel strong enough. I try to make it all work out.

  1. Interesting question. Would this end the stigma that accompanies mental illness, or would there still be a difference, because the pain of mental illness originates from the brain? I am not sure about this 🤔
